Oh my crack! - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Oh my crack!

    Well, I hope it isn't as bad as it looks to me, but I wanted to request the help from you guys who have more experience. What steps should I take? As you can tell, it runs upwards about three rows of bricks and there is a bigger hole at the bottom. As a newbie this is definitely what i was trying to avoid...

    What crack?
    That's definitely nothing to worry about. Normal expansion of your dome.

    Your dome looks great. Press on and make pizza!

      I agree with Ken. As a side note, when you build your next oven, try to keep the bricks off bond - it helps.

        I will third this motion...no worries.
        Les makes a good point, a little extra care should be taken to make sure that your vertical joints do not line up from one course to the next - off bond, as a true mason would say.

            Les and RT,

            Thanks for the advice. I will keep that in mind. In some ways, I want to tear this one down already and rebuild, just to do it completely right, but I will wait for necessity to call. thanks! I'll be deep into making pizzas tomorrow.

              Don't let it bother you too much RJ. Most of us would probably like to do it again. And a few of us do. But we also enjoy the heck out of the oven we have - even with their "unique" features (such as cracks, uneven hearths, occasional wetness, etc.).
